Apogee Electronics Launches New Symphony I/O Configurations, Pricing
October 20, 2012 by David Weiss
It appears that Apogee Electronics’ flagship has simultaneously become more approachable and more affordable.
The company announced that Symphony I/O, the company’s flagship audio interface, is now available in select configurations with significant price reductions.
According to Apogee, higher production volumes of their professional multi-channel recording interface have allowed them to achieve lower manufacturing costs. Meanwhile, the line has been simplified to provide customers with “clear, scalable choices.”
The updated pricing and configurations are available now. Here’s how Apogee explains it:
”Symphony I/O is now offered in four configurations with the ability to expand using one of the five available I/O Modules. Configurations include; Symphony I/O 2×6, Symphony I/O 8×8, Symphony I/O 16×16, Symphony I/O 8×8+8MP. These four configurations offer the perfect starting point when purchasing Symphony I/O. With each configuration, customers have the ability to easily expand with up to fourteen possible combinations maxing out at 32×32 Analog I/O in a single Symphony I/O.
Symphony I/O’s new pricing structure offers exceptional savings to Symphony I/O customers looking to expand their configuration. The 16×16 Analog I/O Module receives a price reduction from $3495 to $2995 and the 8 Mic Preamp Module from $1995 to $1495. At $1495, the 8 Mic Preamp Module delivers a $186.88 cost per channel creating unprecedented value for a professional recording interface.
